About

Caring Hospice Services in Mount Laurel is a unique, holistic and cost effective service designed to meet the social, emotional, spiritual and physical needs of their patients and families as they face terminal illness. The mission of Caring Hospice Services is to coordinate patient and family services while respecting their choices, values and beliefs.

Caring Hospice Services has patients in communities throughout southern New Jersey. They are in need of individuals willing to provide friendly visits with patients and share their talent of singing and/or playing a musical instrument a few hours per month. Caring Hospice Services patients reside in private homes, nursing homes and assisted-living facilities throughout Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties.

Music Volunteers visit patients on a regular basis and help by providing companionship, joy of the gift of music and a social outlet to patients. Caring Hospice Services will find a way to share your talents and interests with their patients and families.

Individualized training is provided free of charge without the need to travel to the Mount Laurel office. In keeping with Medicare requirements, background and medical checks are part of the training process. There is no requirement to be a certified Music Therapist to be part of this program.
